Connecticut is 2016’s most energy-expensive state

With July tending to produce the highest monthly energy bills for consumers and the poorest of Americans — 25 million households — spending 22% of their total after-tax income on energy costs, the personal-finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2016’s Most & Least Energy-Expensive States.

For a better understanding of our energy costs relative to where we live and how much we consume, WalletHub’s analysts compared the average monthly energy bills in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia using a special formula that accounts for the following residential energy types: electricity, natural gas, motor fuel and home heating oil.

Energy Consumption & Cost in Connecticut (1=Most Expensive; 25=Avg.):

  • Avg. Monthly Energy Bill: $404
  • 3rd – Price of Electricity
  • 11th – Price of Natural Gas
  • 30th – Natural-Gas Consumption per Consumer
  • 14th – Price of Motor Fuel
  • 3rd – Price of Home Heating Oil
  • 2nd – Home Heating-Oil Consumption per Consumer
